been covering the trial from the beginning and joins us at d.c. superior court. >> reporter: laura, it took the jury 3 1/2 days to reach a conclusion. at 11:45 this morning, the judge received a note from the foreperson that they had all reached the same conclusion. judge gerald fisher then asked the jury foeperson to stand. you could feel the tension in the courtroom as she was asked for the verdict. guandique looked up from the table where he was sitting. whatever the decision, he would hear it in spanish through the headphones he was wearing. guilty, the foreperson said to the count of first-degree felony murder/kidnapping. judge gerald fisher then asked what the jury decided for the count of first-degree murder of attempted robbery. guilty, she said. with tears in her eyes, susan levy glared at guandique look for his reaction. two jurors wiped away tears as
the judge thanked them for their service. late this afternoon, u.s. attorney ron machin, the police chief cathy lanier and the team that investigated and prosecuted guandique made a statement in front of the courthouse. >> our hearts go out to the levy family, which has shown remarkable strength and courage throughout the ordeal. while today's verdict won't give them back their daughter, we hope it gives them some level of comfort and helps them to move forward. >> i can't imagine what it must be like to lose a child. unfortunately in this child, i see too many parents who lost children. but, if i did, i know there was mold -- there would be nothing to make me feel better than to have police officers, police detectives and prosecutors who really care about the family and to bring closure for the family. >> reporter: one of the detectives who closed the case was in the courtroom for the verdict. he, along with detective todd williams and emilio martinez, secured the arrest warrant in the case and escorted guandique
into the homicide branch before his first court appearance. chandra levy's remains were found in rock creek park a little over a year after vanishing. the police don't know how she died but there was evidence she was violently attacked. perhaps tied up. ingmar guandique was serving time for attacking two other women in the park when detectives decided to take another close look at him and as the proceedings came to a close, guandique stood up, threw his headphones on the table and stormed out of the courtroom. ignoring his defense attorney's pleas to wait. when ingmar guandique is sentenced on february 11th, he's facing a minimum of 30 years in prison and we're going to bring in bernie grim who has been gracious in his analysis over the length of the trial and let's talk about this a little bit. the defense had a lot of questions here and that they could pose to the jury. there is no forensic evidence or eyewitnesses. there is so much here that
raised doubt about guandique. yet the prosecution pushed ahead and basically got a convict with a jailhouse confession and prior bad acts, what do you make of this? >> the prosecution is to be commended. they did a admirable job and what one could say was a difficult case. when you look at it, i think what the jur he at the end, paul, was watch deeky sitting there at the take -- watch deeky sitting there at table, no suggestion that anyone else did yet other than reasonable doubt. how close he lives to the area and the two other incidents, the prior incidents were compelling and that is what put him in the position he's in now, i think. >> the unknown dna on chandra leavy's tights, it's really a question as to how the jury got by that because it didn't match up with guandique, didn't match up with condet or who that belongs to. yet, the jury was able to overcome it. what do you make of that? that is fascinating for me from
a forensic standpoint. when you're on the other side of that, it's hard to overcome that when the client's dna is found on the murder weapon or knife, whatever the case might be. the defense put that out there and i believe the government suggested it was an innocent transfer of the some skin cells or touch dna and to this day, i mean, it's -- that is going to boggle my mind forever and ever and ever. >> reporter: this is a completely circumstantial evidencual case. have -- cirquum standual case. you have ever seen anything like this before? >> there is no winners. this is fascinating for me is the amount of time between when the young lady, miss levy disappeared, and all of a sudden the case coming to the courthouse. >> bernie graham, laura, back to you. >> i have to ask you, you have been covering this case ever since it happened 9 1/2 years ago. you have been there every day for the trial blogging from your street in the courtroom. what was your reaction today when you heard the verdict? >> reporter: laura, i have told other reporters and people that i know, friends and i have even
told bernie i thought it could go either way. even fitting through all of the evidence. i thought that they could get a conviction, and i thought there could be an acquittal. and there was enough evidence for me sitting there and listening to mrs. mendes talking about guandique not denying being involved in, quote, a dead girl and armando morales talking about the confession in jail, and then the prior bad acts. i think bernie would agree with me here, that the prior bad acts, probably hurt guandique more than anything, don't you think? >> and in most cases, that is sort of the icing on the cake. this case for me wases link pin, what -- lynch pin, what locked him into the area. >> and this has been fascinating, thank you very much. it's been a long ordeal, a monumental decision for the jurors, spending weeks here in
details of one of d.c.'s most notorious murders. roby chavez is their reaction and now that the verdict is n. >> reporter: it was an emotional day, we saw two jurors wiping away tears and afterwards, we spoke with some outside of the courthouse and they said two things: they had enough evidence and this was not a difficult decision and things stood out and that both sides presented compelling closing arguments. the thing that meant the most to them was the witness testimony was compelling. >> it's been very wearing and tiring experience. >> reporter: after nearly a month of service, jurors walked out of the courthouse relieved and weary after reaching a unanimous guilty verdict. >> you're dealing two people's life and i don't take that lightly but very, very seriously. i'm confident with the decision
we made, but that doesn't mean that i didn't wish we didn't have to be here today. >> reporter: as a group, they decided not to speak about how they got to their decision. for 3 1/2 days, they sat in a small room going over mounds of evidence. >> and we went through it in a very deliberate manner and went through the law very deliberately to make sure we were satisfying the requirements that each law had. >> reporter: only three jurors spoke afterwards. members of the 9 women and three-man panel did say they were moved by the gut-wrenching testimony of guandique's past victims. >> it was powerful. >> and why? >> because of the, motion. they were very -- it was, i think, it would have been hard for anyone in the courtroom not to be moved by their story. very powerful. >> reporter: jurors said it was a life-changing event. >> and that whole process, everything about my life specifically has had to change. i have had to change my work
schedule, had to change the way i think, the way i process information, i can't ask questions, couldn't do any research on my own. >> reporter: as tough as it was, jurors are reminded that none of their hard work can bring levy back for her mother or family. >> i think she has to take from this what she will. we can not bring back her daughter and nobody here can do anything to bring back the daughter and we did the best week with the evidence we were given. >> i think that is key for the jurors. they take this job seriously and look over the evidence and at the law and came away with a guilty verdict today. >> not to take anything away from the jurors who had to make a huge sack tice to take part in the trial, but did you get a sense from them that some of them want to go on and tell the story? you know, as we're hearing a lot in the high-profile cases,
and that they go on and write books? >> reporter: most were united and didn't want to talk about the specifics about what led their hand and they wanted to talk about how this impacted them, how engaged they were, the kinds of things they looked at in terms of the law and the evidence and to let everyone know that there was evidence. it didn't seem like anyone wanted to take this beyond this and many, i think, are ready to go back to their lives. >> all right, roby chavez at d.c. superior court. >> and it's been a long journey for chandra levy's family. the mother sat through much of the trial and spoke out today after the verdict was reached. karen gray houston was outside the courthouse today. what was her reaction? >> and it's hard to know exactly what it's like to lose a loved one to murder and she reacted like a mother who lost her child to violence and won't get her back. >> reporter: susan levy has been pressing for justice for 9
years since finding out that chandra was leaving. a reporter asked if, with ingmar guandique found guilty, she's found a sense of peace. >> i'm not sure of the sense of peace, but i can tell you it ain't closure. >> reporter: it's been a painful ordeal for levy and her family. the disappearance of the federal enter, suggestions that then-congressman gary condit might have been responsible. allegations of an extra marital affair, her body finally found in rock creek park and then the link to guandique. >> the results of the verdict may be guilty, but i have a lifetime sentence of a lost limb, missing from our family tree. >> reporter: over the years, susan levy has grown accustomed to the spotlight. her comments after the verdict read from scribblings on notebook paper, thanked various victim rights advocacy groups and opened with something her daughter used to say. >> i would like to say what
difference does it make, the same thing my daughter used to say to me all the time and that is a profound statement. it makes a difference to find the right person responsible for my daughter's death. >> reporter: susan levy sobbed out loud and looked at guandique as the verdict was read and told reporters she doesn't know what she was thinking but knows she misses her daughter. >> it's painful, i live with it every day and -- my son, my mother and other family members. >> reporter: chandra's mother noted the holidays are approaching and asked the media to give her family time to be together to try to find a new normal. laura. >> thank you. we want to get your reaction to today's verdict in the chandra leavy murder try. you can sound off on our website, go to www.myfoxdc.com and find the link on the home page to take to you the comment section.

invasive searching, i don't think that needs to be done to the level. >> reporter: the head of the transportation security administration is going further in acknowledging the public concern saying that tsa will re- evaluate the policy. >> there has been a reaction that not many could have predicted, including myself. >> reporter: john pistol, tsa's chief said the administration will come up with new search procedures that are as effective and not as uncomfortable. >> if we can do it less invasively as has been the request, i'm open to doing that. >> reporter: the critics say the government could have avoided all of this if it had done a better job of explaining the policy. >> and we're americans and allowed to question our government. >> reporter: he works for the union representing 13,000 tsa officers and who he said face resistence and ridicule. from the public the officers are working to protect. >> the tso seems to be at the

>> a fox 5 consumer alert that every parent needs to hear and that is a warning of dangerous levels of lead. the lab test commissioned by "the associated press" found some glasses of led up -- lead up to 1,000 times the limit. allison seymour explains. >> reporter: they're collectible drinking glasses featuring cartoon characters, comic book heros and the splashes of color come with potentially dangerous medals. >> you have glasses being made, marketed and sold that would have these levels of lead that wouldk seed federal guidelines. >> reporter: up -- exceed federal guidelines. >> reporter: up to 1,000 times. in these glasses with characters from d.c.comics and the wizard of oz, the laboratory testing commissioned by "the associated press" found high levels of the even more dangerous cadmium and there are no federal limits on the surfaces of these glasses. and the super hero and oz glasses are made in china,
purchased at a warner brother studio store in burbank, california. the findings are part of a continuing ap investigation into dangerous medals in children's products and this summer, method's recalled 12 million glasses when cadmium escaped and after that, the ap randomly brought glasses appealing to kids. >> what else might be out there right now and looking back because, of course, the collectible glasses have been in serkidation -- circulation for decades and what may have been going on over time as l. >> reporter: testing shows it was easy to find glasses and to appear to violate the federal lead laws and it's up to the government to see if -- and subject to strict limits for lead. if not, the levels would be legal. the danger is the colorful designs can wear away. metal and enamel and lead can
reduce iqs, cadmium is a carcinogen and may harm kidneys and bones over time and all of this has some worried. >> it affects the choices we make. definitely, it's affecting, you know, the way we purchase. >> the ap tests glasses for how much lead and cadmium could escape and those results pointed to potential health concerns. >> the levels are low in the sense of they're not -- 19 is going to touch this glass and put their hand to their mouth and fall ill and this is a low level over time concerned. >> reporter: the importer of the glasses said they passed all relevant testing. both the importer and warner brothers said the glasses are marketed to adult collectors and not kids. for years, companies in the u.s. have tried to get rid of
lead and done rages but cadmium is an important pigment. without it, glasses like these might be safer but not as colorful. allison seymour, fox 5 news. 47 years ago today, the world was reeling with news of the jfk assassination. tonight at 10, an exclusive interview with someone write rite there that day who has never spoken before in detail. here's bob barnard. >> reporter: brian, clint hill is a 78-year-old retiree who lived in al,andrea for most of his adult life o. this day in 1963, he was the 31-year-old secret service secret service agent who climbed aboard the presidential limousine in dallas, seconds after john f. kennedy was shot. >> i had a very, very sense of guilt that i didn't do enough to do what i should have done. >> reporter: that is clint hill, 47 years ago today pushing the first lady, jackie kennedy, into the limousine secs after the president was

60s out there before some clouds and some showers start moving on in and so, as the weekend, it was gorgeous and today is great and tomorrow is just about as good. how about this evening? well, it's nice out there and temperatures in the 50s now for just about everybody. it's 56 at 7, 54 at 9 and 11:00, temperature of 53. notice, i mean temperatures don't get dramatically colder this evening. it's 59 here in the city. fredericksburg, again, we mentioned the it with 70 earlier and cooled down so to60 degrees now and let me step out of this. areawide, look at columbus, ohio, 68 degrees right now and they wereef is degrees earlier and there is a big area of warm air here and it's going to stay in place the next couple of days, okay, i think there is a potential that tomorrow we sore way up into the upper 60s and close to 70. st. louis now, 70 degrees and chicago, 63. there is a line of severe weather moving through chicago right now and in the 80s, all the way into texas, i would
